    I added to MA when they went down (have enough V already). AMZN and MKL I also already have the allocation I want.

    Per the Gift Cards, always remember they can be used as gifts! I have mailed out (and received) Gift Cards for birthdays for AMZN and restaurants. It is not all a bad cash deal at 0% as you imply.

    OTOH I would not buy one for my own use, as that would be financially stupid.

    I like 'where the money is', but most of your picks have zero to no chance of beating the market in the coming years. I would rather buy an index fund than these 3.
